St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) October 25, 2013 - Here’s the truth: We depend on our devices. To stay connected. To map our paths. To document our lives. Recent studies show that there are more than 325 million wireless subscriptions in the United States, a figure expected to increase nearly 17 percent over the next four years. With millions of phones in service and hundreds of thousands more sold each day, the odds of cracking a smartphone screen or dropping water on a tablet are staggeringly high. That can equate to disconnecting with family and friends, no GPS, or losing precious photos and movies of our loved ones. CPR, the company that pioneered the electronics repair sector more than 10 years ago, is the fix. CPR specializes in tablet repair, including iPads. The company’s newest location, one of 150 across the country, is now open in Mehlville. With this latest store, CPR further positions itself as one of the fastest growing non-food franchises in America and bolsters the electronic and wireless offerings available to the community.
"Our devices have become extensions of ourselves in many cases," says Kevin Key local owner of the new CPR location. "Think about your daily routine. You lose that smartphone or that tablet, and you’re derailed. How much time can you afford to waste to get back on track? This issue touches just about everybody, and that’s why I’ve invested myself in this business here in Mehlville."
Key opened his first CPR location in Mehlville, conveniently located in the SouthPoint Shopping Center. The new store features a same-day service desk, a staff of knowledgeable repair technicians and a wide selection of professionally refurbished phones, tablets and other electronic devices. As one of the leading electronics repair franchises in the country, CPR Cell Phone Repair reconnects customers to their everyday life after incurring damage to their personal and portable electronics devices.
With a staff of highly-skilled technicians, CPR is able to service a multitude of electronics devices including cell phones, laptops, gaming system, mp3 players, tablets and several other personal electronics. Technicians are trained in the most up-to-date repair techniques and pride themselves on providing fast, professional, same day restoration services. In addition to the service desk, CPR also stocks many name brand phone accessories and professionally refurbished phones, tablets and personal electronic devices available without contracts. CPR also operates on an environmentally friendly platform by providing a green solution for electronic waste. CPR gladly accepts all unwanted electronic devices into their safe recycling program in order to keep dangerous chemicals out of community landfills.
In celebration of the official grand opening, CPR will host events at the location beginning on Thursday Nov. 7 and extending through Saturday Nov. 9. Customers can expect a celebration which includes events and giveaways. The South County Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to welcome the business to the community during an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 7 at 10:00 AM.
"At CPR, we’re well aware of the helplessness you feel when your device won’t work. Our main objective is to ensure that our customers experience the shortest down time possible," explains Jeff Gasner, chief development officer and co-owner of CPR Cell Phone Repair. "Although seemingly inconsequential, many times a damaged phone can be what keeps you from dialing first responders in an emergency situation or contacting family members to share a new life event or notifying work of an important new development. We never want our customers to miss out on any of life’s moments."
The new CPR Cell Phone Repair store is located at 4479 Lemay Ferry Rd. in Mehlville, MO. Operating hours are Mon. – Fri. 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Saturday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The store phone number is 314-892-4CPR (4277).
